Festive Season Brings in Lakhs of Temporary Job Opportunities

The festive season has kicked in and with this, the roads and malls seem crowded along with the online sales. What makes this the best time of the year for everyone, and not just big brands?

This festival month segments such as the durables are looking at around 20% growth; however, food is looking at around 10% growth this year.

The festivals bring in a lot of opportunities, both temporary and permanent jobs, especially in India.

Since the festival month has so much to offer, let’s have a look at what opportunities it brings for the population:

New Small Time Businesses

The festive season is the right time to earn a profit for the small time businesses. And, many new small businesses flourish and last till the end of the season.

The streets are flooded with small-time businessmen, whose products change with demands, starting from lights to candles, junk jewellery to decorative and many more.

Delivery Service

Since e-commerce giants push their festive sale button on, the orders start pouring in, to meet each order delivered in time, and they hire delivery boys in volume.

According to estimates by temporary hiring firms, the festive season has the potential to create more than 3 lakh jobs. Flipkart estimates to hire 30,000 temporary workers, where Amazon says 50,000.

Other than e-commerce, food delivery companies such as Swiggy, Foodpanda, and the likes also hire delivery partners.

Warehouse Workers

Not only delivery but packing, sealing, arranging, cleaning and keeping a track of many items, that are delivered from manufacturers till it reaches the customer, needs a lot of helping hands.

These also create a huge amount of temporary job opportunities for the people, especially in tier-I, tier-II and tier-III cities.

According to the research firm, as consumers thronged the online platforms to buy smartphones (sales of 4.6 million units, translating into USD 800 million), large appliances (USD 170 million) and fashion (USD 120 million), the industry is on its way to achieve the milestone of USD 3 million, which is double to that of the last year's mark.
